“It’s easy to feel insecure around art and its appreciation, as though we cannot enjoy certain artworks if we don’t have a lot of academic and historical knowledge. But if there’s one message that I want you to take away it’s that anybody can enjoy art and anybody can have a life in the arts - even me! For even I, an Essex transvestite potter, have been let in by the art-world mafia.”
If you're interested in the (often bewildering) art world, I highly recommend this funny, charming, and insightful book by artist Grayson Perry.
Note: I got this book for review purposes through NetGalley.
